In Citrus Heights, Roseville, and Carmichael areas summers are hot and winters are cold and wet. Through the year we can expect storms to come and go between September to May. After all, the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers”. 

If a storm hits the local area, these are some tips for you to stay safe: 

  • Follow any advisories or instructions from radio or news
  • Until advised it is safe, do not go outdoors
  • Stay away from broken power lines
  • Avoid standing water
  • Avoid any metal objects that may be close to broken power lines
  • Do not enter buildings and leave buildings with structural damage
  • Stay away from trees that are damaged
  • Stay out of floodwaters
  • Turn as off in the home or building if you smell as
  • Check on neighbors, especially if they have small children or there are those that are elderly or disabled in the home
  • Do not drive unless it is a must
  • Watch for damaged roads and bridges
  • Do not drive on flooded streets or bridges with water that is too high
  • Do not eat perishable food or food that should be refrigerated and reached 40° F.
  • Keep pets indoors
  • Make sure the sewer system is working before flushing or running water
  • Test battery powered smoke and CO alarms
  • Avoid using candles
  • Keep a fire extinguisher in the home as lightning can cause fires
